Throw in a pound of haggis and you've got yourself a deal.

Done. And a bottle of Clynelish to wash it down with.

I went on a whisky diet recently. I've lost three days already...

Come to this side of the pond next Columbus Day weekend for next year's Festy Experience and I will treat you to insane bluegrass/newgrass by the Infamous StringDusters and as many growlers of Devils Backbone Brewery IPA you can consume.....

"as many growlers of Devils Backbone Brewery IPA you can consume....."

that statement makes my mouth water. i've only had the pleasure of consuming an eight point ipa from the backbone one time, but the wonderful taste is something i'll never forget. if i didn't live 10 minutes from a brewery, i would probably have placed a mass order for some of that ipa by now. do you like the 8 or 10 point?

"do you like the 8 or 10 point?"

Yes.

Actually, they had a "special" StringDuster IPA just for the Festy which I am pretty sure was their regular 10 point, as well as the 8 point. I think the 8 point won by a nose.

If you two will accept a couple of fingers of Caol Ila 12, I'll bring that along as well.......?

I say we all meet at Kennacraig and catch the ferry for a serious tour of the promised land.

Here's what I suggest. Start on Skye for a trip to Talisker, south to Tobermory, across to Oban, south again to Jura and then we go across the Sound of Islay to the treasures that await. Got to get acclimatised before you hit the heights. :-)

Before I die I'd like to pay homage to my ancestors and take a bottle of Connemarra Peated Single Malt to the top of Skellig Michael and drink until the ghosts of ancient monks come out to discuss the definitive Darkstar.

Now that, my friend, sounds like a grand ambition - and all the better for being so tantalisingly within the realms of possibility.

I will personally guide the portion of the tour through Islay. We can stay at Hunter's Quay near Dunoon and lubricate our arteries with fish and chips from Anselmos.

Be forewarned that it will probably take two days each at the Lagavulin, Ardbeg and Springbank distilleries.
